Past Events:

The series, “Trieste Science & the City” was launched in 2013, and progressively gained notoriety as the 3rd and 4th editions were filmed live by the Rai Italian national television. Events were also the subject of a broadcast on Rai radio, thereby reaching a vast audience world-wide and constituting a model that champions science communication; an activity integral to the mission of the ICGEB. Programmes and events can be downloaded for viewing here.
